With the same teen spirit they used to cheer him on at football games, Smithsburg High School students filled the bleachers for a different reason Thursday night - to pull for a classmate who was critically injured in a recent car crash. At the vigil for injured athlete Preston Miller, which was aimed at gathering “prayers for Preston,” they cheered his name, wrote him messages of support and bowed their heads in prayer. On the school's track and football field about 200 students, all wearing his favorite color, red, gathered to spell out his initials - PM.  Preston, an incoming senior who is a football player and member of the school's track team, is currently at R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, where a hospital spokeswoman said he was in critical condition Thursday morning.

With temperatures nearing the 100-degree mark during the past week, some area residents expressed concerns about animals being left in cars and what agencies to call to report such activity. “I called the humane society a few days ago and they were closed in the evening when I saw two dogs at the City Park, locked in the car,” a Hagerstown resident said recently in Mail Call. “Then I called the police department, and they told me they don't handle such matters, that I was to call the humane society.” Another person in Mail Call a day later said she was told that as long as the vehicle's windows were cracked and there was ventilation, there was nothing that could be done about an animal being left in a car. “But I'm curious about who you also call when you do see this, if the city police or anybody doesn't respond to it,” the Hagerstown resident said.
